Attorney General Alan Wilson announces Federal Court grants South Carolina’s request to temporarily block Biden student loan forgiveness plan

(COLUMBIA, S.C.) – South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson announced that the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas has temporarily blocked the Biden administration’s scheme to forgive some college student loans. The Court issued a preliminary injunction Monday afternoon in a lawsuit filed by South Carolina, Alaska, and Texas.

Attorney General Wilson said, “This is a huge win for South Carolina as a judge ruled with us in the fight against the Biden administration’s illegal student loan forgiveness! In response to our lawsuit challenging the SAVE student loan repayment plan, a court entered an order that forbids implementing the parts that were scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2024. Many families are feeling the daily effects of inflation, and I will continue fighting to ensure others’ student loan payments aren’t put on the backs of taxpayers.”

The order goes into effect on June 30, 2024, and applies nationwide.
